Mr Paroubek on Tuesday also objected to remarks made by former president Václav Havel regarding the automobile manufacturer Škoda Auto. Speaking of the dangers of overproduction on Monday, Mr Havel said he thought it “monstrous” to expect the auto industry to make more cars for the sake of unemployment, and compared the idea to requiring concentration camps solely for the employment of guards and jailers. The Social Democrats on Tuesday asked that Mr Havel apologize to the workers of the Škoda factory, to which the ex-president’s office replied only that there would be no comment for the time being.
